Mohawk have been producing guitar finishing products for decades and are the preferred choice by many top American guitar manufacturers. Mohawk UltraŽ stains have have superior transparent qualities found only in dye stains and excellent lightfastness. They are engineered not to not bleed into top coat finishes.

These stains have been used by many of the worlds best luthiers. It was the Mohawk blue that James D'Aquisto used to colour the lacquer on his 'Centura Deluxe', one of the most famous guitars of all time and an instrument that inspired a generation of blue guitars.

Like all finishing products of this type it is extremely important to read the safety instructions and Material Safety Data Sheet. This product has strong fumes so it is important to use in a ventilated area and use a respirator mask designed for spray paint. It is also highly flammable.

Application to raw timber - The stain can be applied to raw timber to add colour and enhance the grain. The timber should be fine sanded and free from dust and dirt. Rub the stain on along the grain with a cloth then when the surface is covered rub off any excess with a clean cloth. A second coat can be applied to make the colour darker and more even.

Application in lacquer - The stains can be mixed into Nitrocellulose lacquers to create translucent colours suitable for tinted and sunburst finishes. It is important not to exceed 6% concentration (no more than 60ml stain in 1 litre of lacquer) or separation may occur. This will limit how dark the colour can be and also how many coats of coloured lacquer should be applied.

At least one clear coat (clear lacquer) should be applied before any colour, the clear coat should be sanded with some fine sandpaper to create a smooth surface for the colour coat. After applying the colour coat you should then apply several sessions of clear top coats as if you were finishing a natural timber guitar, thickening up the finish so it can be buffed out as normal without any danger of polishing through the colour.

It is a good practice when spraying translucent colours to be conservative and start with a lighter concentration first as it is easy to darken the colour with more stain or more coats but impossible to lighten the colour if it is too dark. This will also make for a more even, less patchy finish as more coats will even out the colour.
